Who We Are

We’re A Marketing Agency Dedicated To Helping Your Business Grow.


Our agency is built on the principle of “treating your business like our own” and we have created a flexible, accessible solution for Small and Medium Businesses, Start ups and Entrepreneurs who value a personal approach.

Wise Up Marketing was launched in 2010 by Mary-Anne Amies as a response to the growth of digital marketing and to assist businesses in targeting consumers through all touch points, drawing upon strategic planning and execution skills both within the digital marketing space and traditional media vehicles.

Wise Up Marketing is dedicated to helping small and medium sized businesses reach their full potential. We use strategies that maximise all the latest touch points to target consumers in relevant ways, with the emphasis on cost-effective solutions and measurable results.

What makes our business unique is our business model. In an industry where agency retainers rule, we have developed our business with no retainers or lock in contracts, but instead transparent processes that meet your needs within your budget

If we sound like the change you have been looking for contact us now so we can help your business grow!

Our Founder

I started my first business at age 8 on the school playground; it was promptly shut down, but would set off a lifelong passion for matching consumer’s needs with products and services.

With a corporate grounding as a Strategic Brand and Marketing specialist working on some of Australia’s favourite brands, I have honed the ability to balance creativity with financial realities, launching products and brands with an innate ability to capture a target market’s attention.

I am also a qualified trainer and assessor, working with training organisations such as the Australian Careers Business College and TAFE NSW. Through this I am able to guide others through learning and education.

Being immersed in the social and digital space for over 10 years I am a passionate Digital Strategist, Speaker and Mentor for business owners looking to maximise the opportunities that Digital Marketing brings.
